Miltenberg courthouse, Hauptstraße 29

The Miltenberg Local Court was an independent court of ordinary jurisdiction in Miltenberg and has been a branch of the Obernburg am Main Local Court since 1973.


With the transfer of Miltenberg to the Kingdom of Bavaria in 1816, a district court of older order was established in Miltenberg in the course of the administrative reorganization of Bavaria. On the occasion of the introduction of the court constitution law on October 1, 1879, a district court was established in Miltenberg, whose district was formed from the former district court district of Miltenberg.[1]

With effect from 1 July 1925, the district court of Stadtprozelten was abolished and of its district Breitenbrunn, Dorfprozelten, Faulbach, Fechenbach, Neuenbuch, Oberaltenbuch, Reistenhausen, Stadtprozelten and Unteraltenbuch were assigned to the district court of Miltenberg.[2]
With effect from 1 May 1932, the Amorbach Local Court was also abolished and its district united with the district of the Miltenberg Local Court.[3]

The Miltenberg Local Court has been a branch of the Obernburg am Main Local Court since 1973.[4]
